‘Millionaire’ co. Complete posts record results

First feature pic in post production

LONDON — Complete Communications, parent of Celador Prods., the company behind “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?,” has posted a record pre-tax profit of £19 million ($27 million) for the year ending September 2001, up 25%. Sales increased 35.5% to $76.7 million.

Privately-owned Complete is increasingly diversifying from its bed-and-butter quizzer, including the upcoming feature film, “Dirty Pretty Things,” a Celador Films production for Miramax and BBC Films.

Company’s debut pic, in post production, is helmed by Steven Frears (“Hi Fidelity,” “The Grifters”) and stars Audrey Tatou (“Amelie”) in her first English-language role.

Complete also makes the sitcom “All About Me” for BBC1, and other game shows such as “Winning Lines” (BBC1) and “The People Versus” (ITV).
